JAVASCRIPT

JavaScript is a lightweight, cross-platform and interpreted scripting language. It is well-known for the development of web pages, many non-browser environments also use it. JavaScript can be used for Client-side developments as well as Server-side developments. JavaScript contains a standard library of objects, like Array, Date, and Math, and a core set of language elements like operators, control structures, and statements.

  • Client-side

    Client-side: It supplies objects to control a browser and its Document Object Model (DOM). Like if client-side extensions allow an application to place elements on an HTML form and respond to user events such as mouse clicks, form input, and page navigation. Use full libraries for the client-side are AngularJS, ReactJS, VueJS and so many others.

  • Server-side

    Server-side: It supplies objects relevant to running JavaScript on a server. Like if the server-side extensions allow an application to communicate with a database, and provide continuity of information from one invocation to another of the application, or perform file manipulations on a server. The useful framework which is the most famous these days is node.js.

Features of JavaScript

According to a recent survey conducted by Stack Overflow, JavaScript is the most popular language on earth.

With advances in browser technology and JavaScript having moved into the server with Node.js and other frameworks, JavaScript is capable of so much more. Here are a few things that we can do with JavaScript:

  • JavaScript was created in the first place for DOM manipulation. Earlier websites were mostly static, after JS was created dynamic Web sites were made.
  • Functions in JS are objects. They may have properties and methods just like another object. They can be passed as arguments in other functions.
  • Can handle date and time.
  • Performs Form Validation although the forms are created using HTML.
  • No compiler needed.
